Costa Rica is known for its tropical beaches, rain-forest and volcanoes. With so many breathtaking sights and views, it is no wonder that families choose to vacation in our slice of paradise. Being a family man myself, I know the importance of capturing these happy memories.
Taking family photos with me is a fun and no-stress experience. My aim is to put you at ease in order to capture the personality of individual family members.
I create fun, modern, and natural looking family photographs and family portraits that can be enjoyed for years to come.
Here are a few examples of my family photography….
So why not book a professional family photography session?

This lovely family wanted to get some special photos of their little girl, they asked me to do some family portraits while they were on vacation in Costa Rica. They have another baby on the way, but did not want that to be the main focus of the session. I think we captured some beautiful moments, including all members of the family. They are thrilled with the photos…and that makes me HAPPY!
This gorgeous family was vacationing in Manuel Antonio and wanted some fun and natural family portraits to remember their trip. I picked up the Family at their beautiful vacation rental home; Casa Cascada in Manuel Antonio; and headed to Playa Espadilla Beach. It was a fun day and I think the joy and love shows in the photos.
A beautiful and simple wedding on the beach at Playa Hermosa, a small surf town just to the south of Jaco on the Costa Rica’s Pacific coast. The ceremony took place in the morning and we had got some great photos with the contrast against the volcanic rocks. After the wedding we headed into to the rainforest to get some fantastic jungle shots. I love the contrast of the near black and white beach photographs with the only splashes of color of the bride’s bouquet and the blue sky, compared to the riot of color in the jungle. Great to have such palette to create fantastic photos.
The Rainforest photographs were taken at Rainmaker, 40 minutes south of Jaco, on Costa Rica’s Pacific coast.
Earlier this month I took a recently married couple for a photography session in the Costa Rican Rainforest. The honeymoon couple were nature / adventure enthusiasts like myself and jumped at the idea of combining a jungle hike with the photography. We went to Rainmaker, which family run nature reserve about a 30 drive from Manuel Antonio. The park has hanging bridges suspended in the rain-forest canopy, river-side trails, waterfalls and jungle swimming holes to take a dip in..all in all, a Costa Rican Paradise! We had a fantastic jungle hike and I think the photos in the misty rainforest came out really well. On the way back we stopped at a little “pulperia” (a Costa Rican convenience store) and I got some fun colorful photos with the signs outside.
There are so many interesting areas and natural backdrops to explore around Manuel Antonio. This shoot felt like we were able to make little photographic stories with each location: boy meets girl…climbing mountains and finally dancing under the “Super Moon” light.
I love what I do and having the chance to meet unique people: creating and capturing moments their lives that they can treasure. I hope you enjoy these photos, I certainly enjoyed taking them.
Last week I got the opportunity to photograph a beautiful family. A couple were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary by bringing all their children and grandchildren to Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica. We did a sunset family portrait session at Casa Punto de Vista. They really enjoyed the session, it was so much fun!
